I stayed in the Stuart Cottage, a cute little cottage with its own lovely garden. The room was beautifully set out, very clean and comfortable. I cannot speak highly enough of the hosts, Dave and Jane. Awesome hosts - very pleasant and most helpful. I will definitely stay at Templenoe Cottages again and will be recommending it to my friends.

What a lovely cosy place to stay... Quality bed linen and fluffy towels. Stayed in the garden cottage and it was beautiful. We were given great information on the town and David & Jane were a great help directing us to an amazing tour of Milford sounds. What a amazing holiday!!!

We have stayed in all of the cottages. They are warm & cosy & very clean. Great location, an easy stroll to town. David & Jane are great hosts & very helpful. Wi-Fi a bit hit & miss. Lovely garden setting.

We stayed in the Kepler Cottage. It provided everything we needed before and after the Kepler Track. The room was very clean and very comfortable in a little oasis of Rowan trees on the edge of town. We loved it. The Wifi didn't reach our cottage, but we were happy to go to the bench near the office - Wifi...

We spent 2 nights in the cottage close to the road : it was small, no place to put our clothes and no wi-fi contrary to what was mentioned when we booked. We paid 458 NZD which we consider overpriced for what it was. We do not recommend it.

Excellent accommodation on the main road into town, which is handy to the lake, restaurants, supermarket etc. Clean and tidy with all facilities needed for an extended stay. Only downside was that there was no wardrobe space. Friendly helpful host. Be warned there is a 3% credit card charge.

Stayed in Murchison Cottage. This was our second stay here. We love the location and being able to sit in the quiet garden, yet easy walk into Town and the Lake itself. Hosts are wonderful.

I would say that the accommodation is decent at best. Pros: 1) The hosts are welcoming and friendly 2) location is quite convenient - located very close to the town centre Cons: 1) Overpriced 2) Free wi-fi is available, but the signal strength is poor

Whilst situated on a main road the residence was quiet. Hosts were extremely welcoming and very friendly, all you had to do was ask. Convenient location with and easy 5 minute walk to the town centre. Loved the cottage feel with you own separate verandah to sit back and relax after a hard day exploring this wonderful area.

Thank wrhauck
